Reverse Engineering Your Life for Fulfillment

Thanks so much for visiting! I'm so glad you stopped by. Let me share a little about myself.


I began my career in education at the collegiate level working with students outside the classroom to develop their leadership skills. I worked across functional areas including Residence Life, Greek Life, Campus Activities, and Student Conduct.  It didn’t take long for me to realize that many of my students were arriving to campus unprepared or underprepared, so I transitioned to the secondary level. As the Dean of Students at a charter high school on the south side of Chicago, I worked to ensure all students were on track for on-time promotion and ultimately on-time graduation.  While I absolutely loved the student population I got to work with, there was something inside nagging for more.

Concurrently to my professional career, I also developed a passion for traveling. It has provided a way for me to learn about others in a way that I 

could never glean from reading books or listening to podcasts. The most impactful trips I’ve experienced are those where I am able to truly connect with the people around me.


As I progressed in my professional career and my personal passion of traveling grew, I began to recognize that the nagging inside was growing into a fire in my heart to combine the two.  This realization was the seed of Life Lived by Design.


I now work with those experiencing any number of life transitions to identify a clear vision of their future and work backwards to bring that vision to reality. I also have the incredible honor of training new life coaches as they develop their skill and passion for serving others.

If this is striking something within your heart, I would love to hear from you and schedule a complimentary 45-minute Design Session.
